Amid Pathaan Row, FWICE Urges Government Protection Against ‘Boycott Bollywood’ Trend, Says It ‘Has Been Affecting The Producers And Lakhs Of Workers Working For The Films’

FWIC stated it has been affecting the lives of many working in the industry.

Pathaan is set to release on January 25, 2023, which is full of drama and action which is directed by Siddharth Anand and produced by Aditya Chopra. It stars Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone in lead roles and will have John Abraham as antagonist. It showcases an undercover police official and drug lord. Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani have worked on its music. It will be released in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu.

The latest bollywood news is that FWICE has sought protection against the Boycott Bollywood trend amid the outrage on Deepika’s attire in Pathaan. Bajrang Dal reportedly vandalised Ahmedabad mall after CBFC issued certification. FWIC stated it has been affecting the lives of many working in the industry.

“The recent trend of “#Boycott Bollywood” has been affecting the producers and lakhs of workers working for the films and it has been seriously noted by the FWICE as it has raised a major situation of survival of the common workers, technicians and the artists who are earning their daily bread from this industry,” FWICE stated urging for protection from the government.


“A film is made with passion and dream of success. However, these blooming dreams get shattered by such trends which are many times influenced by people believing in hatred and those who do not support peace, harmony and unity. People have been barging into the theatres and threatening the public and forcefully vacating the theatres. There have been threats to the producers and the lead actor/actresses. They are abused on social media platforms with filthy/vulgar language,’ it added.


Without taking the name of the film, it further said, “We strongly condemn these acts and the boycotting of any film which is already certified by the final cell of the Film authorities which is the CBFC. Getting a film certified through the CBFC is itself an achievement as the film and the filmmakers are going through the entire process of certification. The protestors of the film should thus follow the right channel and report their grievances against the film to the CBFC and other governing authorities rather than blindly coming up with such a destructive trend to blatantly boycott the entire industry.”


The statement read, “FWICE stands strong in support of the producers who are creating films and generating employment to lakhs of people and help them to earn their living and survive with dignity. We urge the government to intervene in the matter and stop this trend of ‘Boycott Bollywood.”
